According to a recent study by the National Commission on Digestive Diseases, 60-70 million Americans are negatively affected by the foods they eat – and gluten and dairy top the list of implicated foods. Symptoms of gluten and dairy intolerance are systemic and can affect virtually all of the systems in the body – from migraines, to arthritis, to digestive maladies. Celiac Disease is 100% curable with adherence to a gluten-free diet, and children on the Autism spectrum often improve on a gluten-free, dairy-free (GFCF) diet.
